Gettin' fresh … in Northern Nevada

Week Eight

So, what’s in the box?

This week’s CSA goodies are:
chard, lettuce, green garlic, kale, shallots, beets, carrots, radishes, mint, chives, green onions and kohlrabi

What the heck is kohlrabi???

It sort of looks like a turnip or a fennel bulb.  Kinda.

The CSA newsletter suggests eating it raw like a radish or in a coleslaw.  I also saw a recipe to bake it and make kohlrabi fries.  Hmmmm.  We’ll see … What do you recommend?

  1. Kohlrabi soup is actually one of my favorites. It is very elegant and can woo a crowd. You can also use it like chips for a dip if you slice it.
